    H, those are beautiful! Is there a glaze on top of the avocado slices? I’m wondering why they don’t brown. When I have leftover avocado (for snacking) I applied lemon juice on them but they turn brown anyway.

    • thx J, the best we can do is to apply lemon juice, however lemon juice also has tenderizing effects. maximum 4 hours i would say, after that the avocado softens because of the lemon tenderizing effect.

      after you apply lemon juice, you need to airtight it. either with a glaze or with plastic wrap or with a spray of vegetable oil.

      and that’s about it.

      i wished i could have done all the avocado rose work the day ahead, but instead it was done the same day just a few hours prior serving. we had a staff of 4 chefs to work on this and quite fast.
